Selma Blair Explains the Incident in Which She Was Removed From an Airplane on a Stretcher

By
Selma Blair on The Talk with Sharon Osbourne.

All the way back in June, Selma Blair was at the center of an utterly bizarre incident. The actress was on a plane with her son returning from Mexico when she experienced an alarming kind of breakdown in which she reportedly started crying and saying, “He burns my private parts. He won’t let me eat or drink. He beats me. He’s going to kill me.” She was taken off the plane on a stretcher, and had reportedly been mixing prescription medication with alcohol. Blair issued an apology the day after the strange scene and now she’s gone on The Talk to explain what happened. She begins by calling herself “someone who should never drink” but acknowledges she did that day, and then took some kind of medication that didn’t belong to her. “Someone gave me a pill that I thought was something that I had taken before, which I don’t take on a regular basis,” she told the hosts. “It was something completely different. A very bad choice and I had a total psychotic blackout.” Blair says she is completely okay now, that she does not drink at all anymore, and seems pretty comfortable being candid about the whole situation.
